It’s no coincidence that Hanukkah, or chag urim, the “festival of lights” in Hebrew, falls every year on or near the winter solstice. Most faiths that originated in the ancient Near East embedded within their calendars a practice to create warmth and light at the darkest time of the year. So tell the story, ask questions, eat, drink, and create light by welcoming others to your table.

We invite you to participate in Shine A Light Shabbat on Friday, December 8. Drawing inspiration from Hanukkah, gather your friends or community for a Shine A Light Shabbat to dispel the darkness and shine a light on antisemitism. Post your Shabbat dinner with the “Shine A Light” tag and use these resources to inspire your conversation.
